That is not always true. A lot of times you can have up to twelve or more players on each team.

There has to be 11 players on offense and Defence for every play. There has to be at least 7 players on the line of scrimmage prior to the snap of the ball. This applies to both offense and defence

There are 11 football players on each side of the ball (offense and defense)

Offense means the team with the ball is on offense. And the team without the ball is on defense.

5 people on offense and defense, they have to be the same players, and if you want to substitute someone, you have to wait for the next dead ball

Offense and Defense. Offense being the team in possesion of the ball.

The offense and the defense can each have 11 players on the field. If they have 12 ormore players on the field when the ball is snapped they are penalized.

if you have the ball in your possession then your on offense if not your on defense

Did you mean offense? You are on offense when your team has the ball. The goal, when on offense, is to take the ball down the field and score a goal. The opposite of offense would be defense. You are on defense when the opposing team has the ball. The goal when on defense is to prevent the other team from scoring a goal. Hope this helped.

As long as there was a clear change of possession to the defense before they fumbled the ball back to the offense, then the offense would keep the ball and get a new set of downs. If the defense fumbled the ball back to the offense without ever establishing possession, then the ball would go over to the defense on downs. The only way the offense could retain possession in this case is if the ball ended up beyond the first-down marker when the offense finally recovered.

If the offense team misses or failed to gain 10 yards, the defense will take over the ball thus changing the defense to be on offense and offense to be on defense.

The best offense to run against a trapping zone defense to quick ball movement involving cuts from players on the wings into the paint where the zone is the weakest is in the middle

When the defense catches the ball instead of the offense.

User Avatar

The difference is that offense is when your team has the ball and defense is when you want to get the ball or tackle but in your case your going to rip the flag of the other person.

Just like you have players that play on offense, players that play on defense, Special Teams are the players that play on kicking plays (for example kicking a field goal or punting the ball and also for kickoffs and kickoff returns).

A defense is the opposite of offense they stop the offense from touchdowns,passes and etc. If the offense fumbles the football they got a ready to recover it. They can also catch a ball called a intercepation.

They are technically offense now and to adhere to offensive rules. Blocking, laterals, ball possession, etc....

The two sides of basketball are called offense and defense. On offense the team protects the ball and tries to convert a basket. On defense the team guards the ball and tries to stop the other team from scoring.

The offense is whoever has possession of the ball trying to advance into their opponents endzone. The defense is the team trying to stop them.

It is common for teams to have players with the same number, but NCAA rules state that they must be on offense and defense, not on the same side of the ball.

User Avatar

Directly after a basket is scored, the opposing players (previously on defense) usually run up the court waiting for their Point Guard or 1to bring the ball up the court. Players that are now on defense occasionally pressure or press the offense in hopes of receiving the ball again. Hope it helps,===Zakariye===

On offense it would be the players that play on the offensive line (positions: tackle, guard, and center) and on defense it would be the players that play on the defensive line (positions: tackle and end). These positions are the ones closest to the ball when it is put into play.
